It’s the start of a new year and for many that means New Year’s resolutions.
Unfortunately, for most the clock of failure is already ticking.
Whether you plan to rid bad habits or burn through your bucket list, a new year can be the perfect opportunity to set some goals.
Popular resolutions this year include saving money, exercising, quitting smoking, running a marathon, and getting a new hobby/job.
But while many people make goals for the new year, few actually stick to them.
Most are lucky to make it to February.
So how can you hold yourself accountable?
Experts say be specific.
If you want to save money, decide an amount you want to put in savings each payday.
Start small, when exercising commit to moving a little bit each day and add on from there.
Use a support system. Family and friends can be a big help when it comes to achieving goals.
